Tulsa Grocery Store Owner Facing Foreclosure

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa Economic Development Corporation is foreclosing on a north Tulsa grocery store.

The TEDC filed foreclosure papers at the end of June against the owner of the Gateway Market in the 1600 block of North Peoria.  

It claims Antonio Perez still owes them $1.4-million on their loan to him.

Court documents also show he hasn't been paying his taxes.

Perez: “I didn’t want to spend any of my money to pay the taxes, but if I have to I will to stay current.”
Meagan: “Did you know that you would be responsible for the taxes?”
Perez: “I knew. I knew and I'm not blaming anyone other than myself. But we are losing so much money at that place that I didn't want to invest any of my money."

The Gateway Market came close to having to shut its doors in 2014 due to a lack of business.
